A Statement to The Public Opinion:
There has been a lot of gossip and rumors regarding the Kurds secession pursuit in the Eastern Province of Syria. Taking into consideration, that there are members of the Free Syrian Army, a great player of the Syrian revolution, who are now residing in the "Jazeera" (island) area in Syria. Besides them, there are many military defected recruits who had previously left the country and currently returned to work on our only goal; the regime's ouster.
Out of the question, no one at the moment is thinking of secession issues and getting busy in anything but toppling the regime and protecting our civilian peace and national unity.
As members of a Kurdish revolutionary movement, we appeal the Kurds Political Movement to declare their stance, which we have been waiting for so long, of both: the Syrian revolution and the regime's ouster as well as the recent rumors. This is to avoid any other concerns in this revolution and to disapprove any matters that might weaken our unity or concerted goal. All other issues can be negotiated after toppling the regime. We, hereby, confirm that the Kurdish citizens in Syria do not need a statute of nationalism from anyone but we had to refer to this subject.
